I went back to Hongkong recently to accompany a friend who just arrived from Saudi. Nothing was planned on this trip and no itinerary was made except that we should to stay at Hotel Pennington by Rhombus in Hongkong. I've been seeing some good reviews about that hotel that I told my friend we should check the hotel out and experience their service by ourselves.
Hotel Pennington by Rhombus recently got the Certificate of Excellence Award from Trip Advisor. This award is given to few establishments who consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews. Among the thousands of businesses listed, only the top performing 10% can actually get this prestigious award and Hotel Pennington is one those for the year 2014. The hotel was also awarded as 'Asia's Top 5 Emerging Hotel' at the NOW Travel Asia Awards last 2013 and 'Newly Open Best Service Hotels of the Year' at the 2013 Asia Hotel Awards.
The hotel is prominently situated at the centre of the colorful Causeway Bay, a haven for shopping and commercial district in Hongkong. It's just a 5-minute walk away from the MTR train station. Hotel Pennington by Rhombus is near to popular attractons like Time Square, SOGO, Victoria Park, Lee Gardens, Happy Valley Racecourse, Hysan Place and the Hongkong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The hotel's reception is at the 4th floor with a view of the downtown causeway. There I meet the friendly staff including a Filipino personnel who was very nice and even gave us directions on where to go when I needed to buy gifts for friends.
My room in Pennington is slightly bigger than the room on Bonaparte yet both still offer the same kind of warm and caring services. The rooms come in Superior Queen and Deluxe Twin Accommodations. It's furnished with a 40-inch flat-screen TV, small fridge, supreme quality mattress, a big closet and contemporary bathroom with a rain shower. This long stretched of working table is just perfect for anyone who still wants to work even when traveling.
The hotel has an in-site restaurant and offers American Breakfast. They also offer Shuttle and Airport Services, 24-Hour Front Desk, Baggage Storage, Daily Housekeeping and Wifi.
What I love about the hotel the most is that they treat every guest like a VIP. They even gave me a welcome note and a bowl of fruits to make me smile after a long day of roaming around. If i'll be back in Hongkong anytime soon, I would still stay there and recommend it to my friends and families.
By the way pets are allowed in the hotel as long as they weigh 25 lbs or less and you submit in advance your pets' health certificates. For mode details about Hotel Pennington by Rhombus , check out their website here. Indeed, a retreat in Hongkong's Liveliest Neighborhood.
